Springtime is finally upon us! The renewal of nature is contagious. We have a very busy three months ahead. We have five new petitioners, with several candidates yet to receive either their Fellowcraft or Master Masons degrees.
We will target the second meeting each month as a degree night for EA or FC, and will probably schedule specials to confer the Master Mason degree. It’s terrific to have so many new members heading our way... one was a direct result of our participation with Cancer Patient Services Chili Cook-Off in February.
We will participate in the 2019 Backyard Mission Trip on Saturday, April 27. We will contact our most “senior” members and widows to create our work list for that day (and into the summer if we can’t finish on the 27th). This will be a meaningful opportunity for us to fulfill our Masonic obligation to “assist worthy distressed Master Masons, their widows and orphans”. Volunteers can sign up online at https://findlaybmt.com. Those who have work for us to do can also sign up online, or leave a message at the Complex at 419-422-5016 to receive a call from our team.
Our Annual awards night will be Wednesday April 3 at 6:00pm. Dinner at 6:00 and awards at 6:45 for members who have reached membership milestones in Blue Lodge, Chapter, Council, and Commandery.
Jim Buckingham is working on a Mud Hens Baseball game for June 21. We have 40 tickets reserved! Always a fun time! Anyone is welcome!
We will host the Oran Goodman Scholarship and Widow’s Night on Wednesday May 15 with a dinner at 6:00pm. We will announce our Scholarship recipients that evening and will honor the widows of our Brothers who are no longer with us.
We will host the Annual Memorial Service at 3:00pm Sunday May 19 as we remember our Sisters and Brothers who have gone to their heavenly home during the past twelve months.
